I don't offhand know how to do this, and as far as I can tell, it isn't really
necessary to have this line at all. So, unless I'm misunderstanding
something (which is certainly possible) the simpler solution is just remove
it. Otherwise a big segment of your user base (redhat) will be effectively
lost. (I doubt many who would otherwise install an srpm would feel
comfortable to fiddle with unpacking it and editing the spec file)
